All Scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable
for instruction in righteousness,
that the man of God may be complete,
thoroughly equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
Do you like to read? Do you have a good collection of books inside your home? (I know that at least two of my readers do and were probably nodding their heads just now.) How about your local, public library? Do you like to go there to spend time researching a topic, and/or reading or picking up books to take them home?
Noah Webster 1828 defines “library” as:
1. A collection of books belonging to a private person, or to a public institution or a company.
Whether the books are your own or belong to the public library, it is always a good idea to have them organized. Your local library has its specific system for that. Are you using a certain type of system, too, on how to organize your books at home, or have you come up with your own?
Beside other materials and resources, the library contains a variety of fiction and non-fiction books. Knowing its system, we will find it easy to locate one or more books that will offer us advice and knowledge on a selection of topics.
The Bible, God’s Word, is also a “collection” of books, bound together as one, that offers an amazing wide and powerful selection of knowledge. Let’s read what Noah Webster said about the Bible:
BI’BLE, n. [Gr. a book.]
THE BOOK, by way of eminence; the sacred volume, in which are contained the revelations of God, the principles of Christian faith, and the rules of practice. It consists of two parts, called the Old and New Testaments.
God’s Word contains so much wisdom, including answers to life’s toughest questions like:
Where do we come from?
What’s the meaning of life?
Where do we go from here? Is there life after death?
Let me conclude with a quote, which also happens to be the last sentence of the paragraph in which Noah Webster defined the word “Bible”
The Bible should be the standard
as well as of faith.
